Purpose

GGHK is committed to providing a safe, healthy and inclusive environment where people feel comfortable to be themselves, free from any form of discrimination, or harmful behaviour from others. This policy defines how inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour will be addressed to ensure that everyone can contribute to the aims of GGHK safely, effectively and in an inclusive environment where everybody is treated with dignity and respect.

Scope

This policy covers all participants, coaches, trainers, managers and officials involved in GGHK.

Policy

GGHK is committed to creating an environment where everyone feels safe, included and respected and encourages anybody to speak up if they experience or witness behaviour which they find inappropriate or unacceptable.

GGHK is committed to diversity and inclusion and does not tolerate any circumstance where an individual is treated unfairly, is unreasonably denied access to opportunities, or is excluded.

Discrimination, Bullying and Harassment

Discrimination is any negative action or attitude directed toward someone because of a characteristic, like their race or gender identity. Other characteristics are:

  • Age

  • Religion

  • Ethnicity / nationality

  • Disability / medical history

  • Marriage / civil partnership

  • Pregnancy / maternity/ paternity

  • Gender identity or expression / sexual orientation

Bullying is malicious, often repetitive behaviour that is harmful to another and which can undermine, humiliate or injure the person on the receiving end.

Harassment is unwelcome or unwanted behaviour that creates an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for another person.

GGHK is fully committed to the elimination of any form of discrimination other than what is necessary to ensure that the effective and safe execution of GGHK.

GGHK does not tolerate any form of harassment or bullying. Bullying and harassment can occur regardless of whether it was the intent of the perpetrator to cause harm or not.

Examples of bullying and harassment include, but are not limited to:

  • shouting or swearing at another person;

  • making physical and/or psychological threats;

  • overbearing levels of supervision and/or persistent criticism;

  • inappropriate derogatory remarks about and/or ridiculing somebody;

  • unjustifiably excluding colleagues from meetings/communications/social events;

  • deliberately sabotaging or impeding the performance of another;

  • unwelcome physical contact ranging from touching to serious assault;

  • offensive emails, text messages or social media content;

  • physical or verbal sexual advances;

  • making offensive comments or insensitive jokes; and

    spreading rumours about somebody; or insulting someone.

Diversity and Inclusion

GGHK is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in order that everybody feels valued, respected, included and can reach their full potential.

GGHK is committed to creating and sustaining a culture that values meritocracy, openness, fairness and transparency.
Breaches of Policy

Concerns around discrimination, bullying, harassment or any behaviour that undermines the respect of another will be dealt with swiftly and sensitively. You can ask for help or alert the HR Team via email: HR@GGHK2023.com.

Where acts are deliberate, malicious or serious in nature, breaches of this policy may, following the appropriate process, result in exclusion from GGHK.

The Federation of Gay Games (FGG) and GGHK Ltd (GGHK) jointly endeavour to create an inclusive environment during the Gay Games 11 Hong Kong 2023.

FGG and GGHK recognise that not all genders are legally recognised in their country of origin or residency, and are aware of the various challenges that may be faced in these circumstances.

FGG and GGHK recognise that many sporting competitions are still organised in traditional binary male and female gender categories. In its goal to be inclusive of all genders, the FGG and GGHK clearly see how that traditional binary competition structure can be an obstacle for inclusivity of all.

根據我們「參與、 共融及 突破自我™」的原則和價值觀,同樂運動會和聯合會同樂運動會制定了這項政策,旨在實現所有性別的最佳包容性,同時在我們所有的運動賽事和文化活動中為所有人提供安全和公平的比賽環境。

FGG and GGHK firmly believe that a participant should take part in GGHK2023 in the gender category they feel truly reflects their identity. In addition, a growing pool of countries and organisers of sports competitions recognise a gender designation referred to as “X”, which is also an option for some sports.

FGG and GGHK acknowledge that only participants themselves can identify their gender, and a participant should never feel left out or forced to take part in a Gay Games competition that does not align with their identity.

In order to best safeguard fair play and safe participation, some sports may need to continue with the provision of male and female binary gender competition categories, but alternative formats, such as mixed gender competitions, specific non-binary competitions, or open competitions with no gender categories at all, may be offered outside of the binary categories wherever possible, to allow participants of any gender to take part.

The FGG will work with GGHK and successive future organisers of Gay Games to offer an increasing range of competition options across all sports and cultural events, so that we become an even more inclusive place for all genders.

FGG and GGHK are committed to pursuing the official ratification of new records by federations or governing bodies and will support them to develop more inclusive policies wherever possible. However, should a new record be set during a GGHK event by a participant, neither GGHK nor the FGG can guarantee that such record will be recognised or ratified by other (inter)national sports entities. The final decision depends on the relevant international federations or governing bodies’ gender recognition policies.

FGG and GGHK will follow international standards and best practices when implementing measures to ensure the appropriate handling of personal information before, during and after accreditation, in order to prevent any kind of undue disclosure (including waivers for document requirements).

Conduct

GGHK will strive for a discrete, professional, and respectful approach when addressing each person’s gender of competition throughout their GGHK experience.

FGG and GGHK will not tolerate any kind of discriminatory behaviour towards any participant, spectator, guest, official or volunteer at GGHK as per its Code of Conduct and Dignity and Fairness Policy.

It will also not be tolerated for any participant, spectator or volunteer to question or challenge another GGHK participant on their gender; this is a breach of their human rights and against what Gay Games stands for. The Gay Games exists to promote Participation, Inclusion, and Personal Best™ for all, and the FGG will therefore also not tolerate any participant taking unfair advantage of the inclusive nature of GGHK2023 to better their own performance or that of their team.

Registration: Legal Name, Name, Pronouns

To take part in the Gay Games, participants will need to register. FGG and GGHK understand the sensitivity that may exist around gender-related information or their derivatives.

  • Legal Name. While registering, a participant will be required to register with GGHK using their legal name, as printed in their valid travel document. It is an absolute priority for FGG and GGHK to ensure this information remains confidential, undisclosed and securely stored.
  • The legal name will only be used to establish your identity in your contractual and legal relation with GGHK, or as permitted under the relevant privacy policy.
  • At collection of the GGHK accreditation documents, every participant will be required to identify and confirm details with a valid travel document. This includes the Legal name.
  • GGHK will never use this legal name in a way that may encroach on any right to self- identification.
  • A participant will be able to give their own name, which may be different from their legal name, and will be able to use their correct pronouns.
  • This name and these pronouns will be used for operational purposes during the Gay Games, and may differ from the legal name or binary gender pronouns.
  • The GGHK accreditation document provided to each participant will only indicate the participant’s provided name and selected or self-described pronouns.
  • This will allow participants of any gender to be their true authentic selves during GGHK, whilst protecting the identity of participants who present themselves in a way they cannot do when at home.
 

Registration: Legal Gender, Gender Identity and Gender of Competition

  • Legal Gender and Gender Identity. While registering, a participant will be asked both for their legal sex and their gender identity, as non-mandatory, optional questions.
  • Legal sex and gender identity data will only be used for statistical purposes, and allow FGG and GGHK to monitor its achievements in gender-diversity.
  • It is an absolute priority for FGG and GGHK to ensure this information remains confidential, undisclosed and securely stored.
  • At collection of the GGHK accreditation documents, every participant will be required to identify and confirm details with a valid travel document. This includes the legal sex.
  • If legal sex cannot be confirmed by the travel document, a waiver may be accepted on a case by case basis, as both GGHK and the FGG recognise the difficulty for some people to obtain these documents.
  • GGHK will never use this legal sex or gender identity in a way that may encroach on any right to self- identification.
  • Participation Gender Category. Only for those events using distinctive gender categories, participants will be required to indicate their preferred gender of participation, i.e. the gender category they feel most comfortable with when participating in GGHK
Disputes & Questions

All disputes or complaints arising out of or in connection with this policy should be raised, in the first instance, to the GGHK representatives or event officials involved. Should the dispute persist and/or escalation be required, the issue can be raised by any participant or official to a “Disputes Committee” (inclusion@gghk2023.com) for mediation, arbitration or determination.

If the Disputes Committee determines that GGHK has insufficiently met reasonable expectations in providing an inclusive competition opportunity for any individual participant, they will be entitled to a full refund on the related registration fees.

The Disputes Committee is composed of members appointed by FGG and GGHK.

For any question about this policy or its application at GGHK2023, please get in contact with the GGHK and/or the FGG via this email address: inclusion@gghk2023.com

香港同樂運動會的其中一個使命是在運動會之前、期間和之後保持和改善參與者的健康和福祉。為了宣傳「參與、 共融及 突破自我」的原則,同樂運動會一直努力製定和實施允許所有人安全和公平地參加活動的政策。

目標

  • To promote “Participation, Inclusion, and Personal Best” for all participants in the Gay Games 11 Hong Kong 2023 (GGHK2023).
  • 為參與者提供一個安全和公平的競爭環境。
  • 宣傳健康的活動和生活習慣。
  • To educate the participating GGHK2023 community on the risks and challenges of doping in sport.

Health and Well-being

  • Gay Games Hong Kong Limited (GGHK, being the organizer) will seek to provide a safe venue and event, with health care professionals and first aid available to assist those who need care.
  • GGHK會將其收到的任何有關任何參與者的醫療或健康信息保密。

Pre-Existing Conditions and Pregnancy

Participants with pre-existing injuries or medical conditions, including pregnancy, should:

  • Obtain expert advice from qualified medical practitioners before participating, understand their advice, and assess the risks involved.
  • Discuss the issues and implications of competing with other people in their event environment (coaches, team members, managers, other participants).
  • Use common sense and not take unnecessary risks.
  • Take into account their physical condition at the time of the event.
  • Follow expert medical advice during training for the event.
  • Take into account the conditions for travel to and from the event, and while living there.
  • If participating, be prepared to provide any medical history or documentation that may be required for medical treatment.
  • The decision to play is with the participant, but participants must weigh the benefits of training for and competing in the event with regard to injury and risk to themselves.
  • Officials may, however, intervene if they consider that the condition of the participant creates a risk to the health or safety of the participant or others.

Personal Responsibility and Illegal Substances

GGHK2023 promotes personal responsibility and avoidance of risky behaviors for all participants and guests. To further these goals, all participants are urged to visit these websites concerning the issues of safe and safer sex and avoidance of sexually transmitted diseases. 

GGHK has a policy of no tolerance of any illegal substances or recreational drugs. Participants may not use or be under the influence of any illegal substances at any venues or events. Violation of this policy will include removing the participant from the competition or event.

Performance-Enhancing Drugs

GGHK has a policy of no tolerance of any illegal or prescription substance use solely for the purpose of enhancing performance. Violation of this policy will include removing the participant from the event. However, GGHK understands that use of some types of performance enhancing drugs and other substances are medically necessary and will not exclude any participant due to medical uses of such substances.

The goals of the Gay Games policy on performance-enhancing drugs are to promote: health and well- being of participants; individual responsibility for personal behavior; and fair competition. These goals complement and are part of the overall Gay Games principles of Participation, Inclusion and Personal Best.

To further these goals, GGHK promotes personal responsibility and avoidance of use of performance- enhancing drugs for all participants. To further these goals, all participants are urged to visit these websites concerning the use of performance-enhancing drugs and their effects on the user and the sport.

GGHK and the Federation of Gay Games may decide to provide drug testing for performance- enhancing drugs in any sport that requires such testing within the sanctioning body, or if it appears that fairness requires such testing.
